About the Role

 

Katnook Estate is an award-winning winery in Coonawarra. Rich in heritage and history, Katnook Estate is one of the oldest existing wineries in the region and its vineyards stretch over 155 hectares on the famous terra rossa soil strip that runs through Coonawarra.

We're currently looking to fill multiple Vintage Cellar Hands roles on a seasonal casual basis, to commence around mid-January 2022.

As a Vintage Cellar Hand, you will:

  • Undertake vintage cellar operations, including grape receival, crushing, fermentation activities, barrel work and juice/wine transfers
  • Record data on log sheets and cellar notes
  • Maintain general winery cleanliness and hygiene.

 

About You

 

You have:

  • A passion for wine
  • A willingness to learn
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

  • Physical fitness to undertake manual tasks, and the ability to work outdoors, at heights and in confined spaces
  • Flexibility to work up to 12 hours per day, six days per week over a seven-day roster, including shift work.

 

Winery operations experience is desirable, but on-the-job training is available. A high risk work licence for forklift is highly desirable, as is winemaking experience or studies.

Please apply only if you have the legal right to work in Australia.

What You Can Expect

 

We offer excellent pay and conditions, with market-leading hourly wages plus attractive shift penalties and overtime rates.
